Overview & Highlights
Inspired by Michael Bond's classic books and the 2014 hit movie, this 14-day family adventure is a unique opportunity to meet and learn about the endangered spectacled bears in their own environment.
The enchanting, loveable bear from 'darkest Peru' who ended up in Paddington station may not know much about his native land, but would no doubt enjoy this holiday which is ideal for all the family. Offering the chance to see real live Peruvian spectacled bears in their own natural environment, the holiday also explores magnificent Inca ruins with a backdrop of snow-spangled Andean peaks in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and at Machu Picchu, further downstream, where the Urubamba river crashes towards the Amazon basin.
